Most of the stories on this blog are about male soldiers. Every now and then we deal with the medals awarded to females and most of them are nurses. This particular story is unique for us as it is about the medals awarded to a Vietnam War nurse.
I was contacted recently by Leigh who had the Vietnam war medals awarded to F15201 Lorraine Potts. A combination of my research and that of the Department of Veterans Affairs has manage to track down Lorraine's husband and the medals will be returned shortly.
The returned medal tally is now 1657.
